• Third Trimester Update

    I literally started writing a pregnancy update when we were at the 100 day mark and well, we’re now less than 50 days from this little gals due date and I’m finally getting around to posting it.

  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me?

Making My Social [Media] Life Easier with CoSchedule

I started a new job about a month ago…hence me being completely MIA from this blog. Y’all probably thought I overdosed on pumpkin chocolate chip cookies after that last post, didn’t you? Almost, but not quite. Trying to manage 12+ social media accounts for my new job, stay awake during my side job, figure out this whole marriage thing and somehow still…

The Best Fall Cookie You’ll Ever Eat

I know that we technically have a little over a week left of “official” summer…but this morning it was 36 degrees, so I think it’s safe to say that fall has made it’s debut up north. And though I’m a summer girl through and through, I can’t help but excitedly welcome fall each year. The brightly colored leaves, crisp morning air, lively…

The Reverse Capsule Wardrobe

A few years ago I tried to do a capsule wardrobe. Unfortunately, I didn’t ever get past the shopping phase… It seems like ever since the capsule wardrobe became popular a few years ago, everyone and their mother has given it a go.

A Different Kind of Adventure

I’m starting to feel like this blog is just one long episode of “where in the world is Lilly?” It seems like each time I get a chance to sit down and write, I’m in a new state. Well, this time is no exception… If you would have told me a year ago that today I would be living in North…
